Choosing the right detector: a look at the most common HPLC detectors


In this session of our LC Learning Series, we will explore the most common detectors for High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). The presentation will focus primarily on optical detection, such as UV/Vis, Photodiode Array, Fluorescence and Refractive Index detectors, however other HPLC detectors will also be considered. The objective of this presentation is to provide a basic understanding of the theory of operation, advantages and disadvantages of these detectors, and what to consider when choosing a detector for a particular analysis. Common application examples will be given.
